A new poll indicates that many Maryland educators are working a second job to make ends meet. The GBAO poll for the Maryland State Education Association says over the last year, 44-percent of educators held at least one additional job.  That’s an increase of three-percentage points since 2018. The numbers are higher for educators under the age of 30 with 61-percent working a second job along with around 50-percent of Black and Hispanic educators. MSEA President Cheryl Bost says the state must build a more supportive pipeline for aspiring educators and do more to retain high quality educators. She says that can be accomplished through continued investments in the Blueprint for Maryland’s Future, strong local contracts and ensuring that educator voices are at the table.
